Nevertheless, there are various possibilities for composite and electrode materials for energy conversion and storage devices. Along with Cu, various other catalyst substrates have been explored for uniform monolayer or bilayer graphene growth in the CVD process as discussed below.

GO is an insulating graphene sheet containing epoxy and hydroxyl oxygen functional groups on the basal plane and at the edges [ 27 — 29 ]. Graphene on SiC produces high-frequency electronics [ ], light emitting devices [ ], and radiation hard devices [ ]. In molecular beam deposition technique used ethylene gas source which deposited on a nickel substrate. PECVD reduces temperature during deposition was widely exploited in the growth of nanotubes and amorphous carbon [ , , , , , ]. Paredes, M.
The quasi-atomically smooth surface of the liquid to avoid defects or grain boundaries such as those found in solid metals can be perfect choice for single layer graphene growth in the CVD process. The processing of the Cu substrate surface is critical as well as the growth of kinetic parameters determine the size and shape of the single crystals. In the above-discussed point of views, the CVD process is one of the most prominent approaches for the synthesis of high quality graphene with a controlled number of layers in large area. In molecular beam deposition technique used ethylene gas source which deposited on a nickel substrate. The high evaporation rate of Cu in a LPCVD process promotes desorption of carbon species adsorbed on top of the catalyst, leading to a lower nucleation density.

The present challenges toward this direction are selection of proper metal for alloy, composition, and alloy preparation techniques for further development. CVD graphene has electronic properties that are potentially valuable in a number of applications. Now, most of these processes are affected by the background pressure of CVD and responsible for the difference between the low and atmospheric pressure growth of graphene [ 45 ]. Two different possible CVD systems depending on the precursor materials. Figure 6. He and NH3 atmosphere are also used as arc discharge method [ 43 ].
Synthesis of graphene-based materials The first demonstrated process to derive graphene was exfoliation of graphite by using a simple scotch tape technique [ 21 ].
Graphene forms much faster on the C- than on the Si-face [ , ].
